Mitre Saw Station

1705 days ago by Rileysdad | 2 comments »

I saw Blankman’s post on his mitre saw dust hood and thought I’d share my idea for a mitre saw station. This one hangs on the wall by a french cleat. I built it in three sections: left and right fence sections and the center saw section. The saw is the DeWalt 12” dual bevel model (not a slider.) I gave a lot of thought to whether the fence should be built on a platform or on the flat of the table. As you can see I chose the platform and I’m glad I did. I end ...

Shop Skills #5: Using Toner to Add or Change Color

1811 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 35 comments »

Sorry for the False Start Guys… I had the privacy setting turned on when I posted to YouTube. (D’oh!) It’s Finally Here! Whew! It takes a lot of work to shoot a video, edit, and get it posted to the internet. I am still struggling with posting to the internet. My HD file sizes are too big to be accepted by BlipTv and YouTube, and once I get the size down to an acceptable limit, they lose quite a bit of quality. This is a bit frustrating and makes me sad to see al...

Shop Skills #3: Sharpening Card Scrapers - The Lost Scene...

2068 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 27 comments »

Forgive My Insensitivity… A public Thank You is in order before I go any further. I had some great support from two individuals that are a part of LumberJocks. I relied heavily on Dave Pruett for “on call” support to figure out how to edit / process / and post my video. I need to thank Marc Spagnuolo as well. I did not continually call him like Dave, but his advice and pointers were taken to heart and helped me out as well. As with my woodworking, my achievement...

A few sewn things #1: My perfect apron

1039 days ago by need2boat | 6 comments »

In another life I used to make outdoor gear. Mostly sewn things but like woodworking it crosses over into other worlds. Most of my things were made using some old industrial sewing machines that are seeing less use but still loved. The first of these projects is a new apron. I new the second I bought the cheep one at woodcraft for around 12.00 it would find it’s way into the rag bin but I figured I’d wear it for a wile while I decided what I liked and what I needed. Fast for...

American Craftsman Workshop Video Tour

1333 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 40 comments »

A New Toy For Work:) I just got a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS6 for recording my work. One of the great things about it is that it has a 25mm wide angle lens. This is makes it great for taking pictures of my installed work in small rooms. I thought that taking photo & video of the shop would be a good test drive for it and a good way to share a tour of the American Craftsman Workshop. This video was entirely shot with this camera (except for the photos of the camera itself:) Music: ...

Shop Skills #4: Trusting Your Glue Joints

1946 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 29 comments »

Many woodworkers lack confidence in their glue joints. The way to overcome this is by getting to know your products and materials. This is accomplished by experimenting and testing – particularly through destructive testing. I continually test my off-cuts from every project. This provides a form of quality control testing that is specific to each project. In this video I show a couple of the methods that I use to test my glue joints. Testing your joints to the point of wood fa...

New shop under construction #1: Groundbreaking to framing

2409 days ago by Loogie | 17 comments »

After years of building my projects in basements, I’m finally building my own shop. This building will be a three level shop building (including the attic). The main (middle) level will be my woodshop and the basement will be my tractor garage/shed/auto shop. The project is far behind schedule and way over budget, but aren’t they all? The foundation is 25’ wide by 30’ deep giving me just under 750 sq/ft of woodshop. It’s never enough, but it would be very hard to...

Woodworking Accessories Alternatives #6: Making a First Aid Kit

1294 days ago by steliart | 7 comments »

Making a First Aid Kit All of us understand the need of a first aid kit in the workshop, so there is no reason to emphasize its importance here. But do we know what this kit should contain, or what would be needed in an unfortunate scenario. Here are some nice guidelines I found for those who have a first aid kit and those who need to make one for their woodshop. You can make a first aid kit in many ways. You can use any sealed container such as a tool box, a small tool plastic case...

Setting up dedicated woodworking shop #2: Brightening things up.

2005 days ago by Scott Wigginton | 9 comments »

Priming OSB It took two thick coats of drywall primer on my OSB just to get it ready for paint, but it is a drastic improvement over my last attempt of going straight to the latex. Breaking Child Labor Laws I’m quick to put my offspring hard to work, I just hope it still works when they’re old enough to mow the lawn If only I had the clipboard and hardhad I’d qualify for a DOT lead supervisor. Snow Day Today we had a bit of snow/slush/ice and after not ...

Woodworking Shop

663 days ago by MWGreg | 10 comments »

Hi everyone, This is a cool website. Well I just would like to join you all in sharing what I have going on. This is the beginning of my dream shop. Been waiting for this for over twenty years. The main shop will measure 24’ x 30’. An 8’ wide porch will go down the length of the left side, half of which will be enclosed and accessible from the main section. I’m having an Amish contractor build it. I was very fortunate that they dug the holes and got the posts set an...
